SHIPPING TIPS please read!!!
Advice: If you live in Iowa or a state touching Iowa, "Ground shipping" is fine. If you live further away, I STRONGLY encourage you to go with USPS Priority Express or UPS Next Day Air. I know it can be a tough choice for smaller shipments, but better that than queens being in the mail for 4 or 5 days if you live a long ways from us.
USPS Priority Express: This is an excellent option for those 1 to 50 queen orders that want 1 to 2 day airmail shipping that is fully insured, but don't want to give up an arm and a leg in shipping costs.
Live Delivery: We guarantee live delivery on all orders to be received “UPS Next Day Air”, or "USPS Priority Express". If you select a slower service "we" cannot guarantee your order. UPS may still work with you on a claim, see our "Terms and Conditions" tab for more details.
Accuracy: For the most accurate pricing, place your orders on a Monday thru Thursday basis. Carriers do not deliver on Sundays and expedited services may reflect higher charges if you try placing an order on a Friday or Saturday.
Russian Queens are some of the most sought after bees in today's beekeeping world. In general Russians winter better than other bees and are very aggressive towards other insects, yet relatively gentle to people. This aggression towards insects combined with cleaning habits results in excellent natural mite control for your hive. Russians are not "mite free" or "mite proof", there currently is no such strain of honey bee that is. Russians will provide you with much better mite loads than non-resistant stock! Please read our information on Primorsky Russian Bees to see side by side comparisons of various types of honey bees and to learn more about Russians.
AFB - American Foul Brood. We are a licensed queen breeder in Iowa for Inoculating bees utilizing the Dalan bee inoculation technology. The Dalan vaccine inoculation exposes queen bees to inactive (i.e. "dead") bacteria, which enables the larvae hatched in the hive to resist infection.
